Childish Love

At the moment I'm doing some work experience at a village primary school.
One thing that amuses me most is chatting to some of the little girls about the dramas of
'who's going out with who'

When I decided to ask one about what this 'going out' actually meant, she said,
"well, it's like, when, they both, fancy each other, and stuff..."


I love the simplicity of these relationships.
When the girls pointed out those in the playground who were 'going out,'
they were apart; boys playing football and girls chatting with friends,
there was no way of telling that these were, supposedly, couples.

It doesn't really seem to mean much, at that age,
But being in love certainly seems easier then,
And I think there's something sweetly innocent about it.
